Mumford and Sons Disgusted By Sexual Assaults at Swedish Festival

Mumford and Sons have expressed outrage after finding out there had been multiple reports of alleged sexual assault at a recent festival in Sweden.

The Bravalla Festival had 5 reports of rape and 12 sexual assaults during the festival. The three day festival was headlined by Mumford and Sons, Rammstein, and Macklemore and Ryan Lewis.

The band issued a statement on their official Facebook page to address the topic.

“We’re appalled to hear what happened at the Bravalla Festival last weekend. Festivals are a celebration of music and people, a place to let go and feel safe doing so. We’re gutted by these hideous reports.
We won’t play at this festival again until we’ve had assurances from the police and organisers that they’re doing something to combat what appears to be a disgustingly high rate of reported sexual violence.
M, W, B & T”

The band, who have always been very outspoken, have (rightfully so) taken a strong stand against these hideous actions. There is no word on whether or not the festival will change policies to address these terrible acts.
